We got a new toy to play in the sand box with.:D

<img src=http://www.hpphoto.com/servlet/LinkPhoto?GUID=72e23604-6dd0-2297-9223-76a32c3e717c&size=>

I haven't checked what the year is, but it's a MF 204 TLB. It's got a Z134 Continental gas engine, and a 2 range 2 sp transmission with a torque converter instead of a clutch. Haven't had chance to play much yet. But intend to do some digging around the farm, it's pretty old. but it should scratch in the dirt for us anyway.:partydanc

:D Nope, don't plan to take this one apart James, at least not until something serious goes!

Once we get chance to get digging I'll post some pics, but I sure wouldn't want any one watching me for a while!!:eek: Finnesse is definetely optional just yet!:rolleyes: I may need BA to come show me how to do this right.:lmao:


I'm sure not complaining Chief, been wanting one of these for a looong time!! I plan to have a LOT of fun with this toy!!;)

man thats a serious bucket/claw whatever its called.. Have fun putting that beast to work...


I'd pay to be able to try to use stuff like that.. too bad theres no heavy equipment theme park where goobers like me could play with those big toys... I'd pay good money to do it and i bet im not the only one....

Good luck PM... you ever want to make a 'disney heavy equipment playpark' ill be there...

Partsman maybe you cold rent it out to tractorholic’s like us.

Seriously, it’s seems like there would be at least one facility that
would offer tractorholics an opportunity to pay and play.
The problem must be the liability insurance they would need.

How about a lawn tractor magazine? Not even one ?

There's an idea! A magazine like road and track, spend all day playing with different brands and write about them at night.

On the theme park idea, we've got something like that about 6-8 miles from my house!! "Atlantic Transport Training Academy". For I think around $2500 you can spend 6 or 12 weeks learning to operate high-way trucks and/or heavy equipment. They seem to keep the classes pretty full and are always busy. New courses start every 12 weeks!!:D

Paul, this one has spent all it's life around here, we bought it from a nabour by our woodlot, he got it about a year ago from a local tractor dealer. The guy who owned it before that was at our place about a week or 2 ago and recognised it!! He said he had all the cylinders repacked and generally gone over the machine, sooo sounds like it should be good to go for a while.:partydanc

BA, it's a 4 lever control + 2 more for the legs. I'm catching on to what the levers do, but this boy got NO rythm!!:lmao: I haven't had any chance to play yet, just dug a couple of scoops of snow out of the ditch fer fun, but I think I'll catch on once I get cahnce to do some real digging.;)

:cry: Nothing yet Jody, it's still sitting where it was in the picture, hasn't moved. There;s still a lot of snow around, no place to dig yet. I imagine it will be late May by the time the ground dries enough to get any where to dig stuff up!frown
